Whereabouts

Athlete Whereabouts is a system that enables athletes to be easily found and tested without any advance notice.

It’s used by all anti-doping organisations and these “surprise” tests help to detect and deter drug use.  Athlete Whereabouts plays a key role in protecting clean athletes and the integrity of sport.  

The Athlete Whereabouts system requires athletes to log regular information about their whereabouts so that they can be tested.  It’s important you follow the whereabouts rules because if you don’t you could be found to have committed an anti-doping rule violation.  

If you are updating your whereabouts for the period July-September 2020, please do so through the current system here.

To submit Whereabouts for the period October-December 2020, please use the new system, ADAMS.

  • To get your ADAMS username and password please contact us by sending an email to whereabouts@drugfreesport.org.nz. You will receive a reply with a username and password as well as instructions. 
  • We strongly advise you to take a look at AIU’s video ‘Get to know ADAMS’ on YouTube should you require assistance in filling in your Whereabouts by clicking on this link. Alternatively there are written instructions found here
  • Once you are logged in and have submitted your whereabouts online you can then download the Athlete Central Whereabouts App and make any changes to your Whereabouts on the go.
